bug#17272: 24.4.50; obsolete messages hides warning on startup

Subject: bug#17272: 24.4.50; obsolete messages hides warning on startup

If you start emacs with the following loaded file (emacs -Q -l .emacs.test)

;;; .emacs.test
(require 'longlines)
(desktop-save-mode 1)
(desktop-read "/home/robert") ;; $HOME....

When it starts you see the message

     Package longlines is obsolete!

But - if the .emacs.desktop is locked the message:

    Warning: desktop file appears to be in use by PID 6464.
    Using it may cause conflicts.  Use it anyway? (y or n) 

is hiding 'behind' the obsolete message and you don't see it until you
press a key - the emacs startup appears to have stopped but there's no
visual clue as to what it is waiting for.
